HC Deb 06 May 1941 vol 371 c710W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether he will explain the large increase in the licences issued for private motorcars in the last 12 months?

Colonel Llewellin

The increase in licences during the last quarter of 'the last financial year was probably in great part attributable to the "Help Your Neighbour" scheme, which was of great assistance to many in getting to and from their work.
